Abstract
For years, terms like losses, power quality, power stability, etc. have dominated research in electrical power systems. The stated is owed majorly to the social and financial implications of ignoring these phenomena. Voltage tolerance is a major component of power quality. In any power system, the voltage provided by the utility is given within a tolerance level. As a result of this slight deviation from the rated voltage, loads respond accordingly performing more or less efficiently. These responses pose a financial problem to consumers. Therefore load modeling is heavily concentrated on the effects of electrical loads on the end user and the power system.
